I still feel good about this series with Mat going today and Homer going tomorrow. Call me crazy, but the Reds can do this.

Listen, I know it sucks getting punched in the gut like that. It does. Nobody liked watching last night. It's not moments like that which make or break championship teams, it's how the teams respond to those moments. If the Reds can wipe the slate clean and try again tonight, they can pull this off. Stop pretending the Cardinals are different than any other team in baseball, and they'll be fine.

Latos vs. Joe Kelly today, and I like our chances. Go Reds.
